Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > F800GT
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
While not as flashy as BMW's high-end sport-touring bikes, the F800GT offers a more affordable alternative, based around the company's sturdy parallel twin engine. It's pretty stylish and can be accessorized to handle cross-country rides too.
